The Big Boo Cast, Episode 238

This week Melanie shares all about her trip to A&M for Caroline’s New Student Conference (to use baseball terminology, it was a real home run). We also talk about TV (I finished watching Breaking Bad and HAVE SOME THOUGHTS), and we dig into our current summer reading situations.

Plus, we discuss our current state of contentment with our beauty products (I KNOW), and it’s Melanie’s turn for Five Favorites.

Enjoy, y’all!

The Big Boo Cast, Episode 237

Well, Caroline has graduated from high school, which is shocking considering that it seems like yesterday when she was telling Alex about “bad twaffic” in “San Antone-yo” on an early episode of the podcast. Anyway, Melanie brings us up to speed on the graduation festivities, and we also talk about last week at the SEC baseball tournament as well as some of Melanie’s initial reactions to the Friends reunion (we’ll do a Patreon episode about that very thing later this month).

On top of all that, we discuss an exciting new patio umbrella option (because that’s a thing at this stage of life) and my Five Favorites.

Enjoy, everybody!

The Big Boo Cast, Episode 236

It’s a big week for The Big Boo Cast: Caroline’s high school graduation and the SEC Baseball Tournament. Not that those two things are of equal importance, of course (I mean, graduation = milestone). But Melanie and I talk about graduation and the tournament and TV and so much more on this week’s episode.

We also discuss an exciting new find in the way of summer shorts, and Melanie shares her Five Favorites.

The Big Boo Cast, Episode 235

This week we talk about the different ways we’re aware that MAY, IT IS UPON US – graduation and office clean-out for me, Caroline’s soccer all-star game and pre-graduation festivities for Melanie. Melanie also shares an exciting new charcuterie idea (GENIUS), and I talk about some shorts that are suddenly everywhere and clearly taking summer by storm.

We also discuss what we’re watching (of course), and it’s my turn for Five Favorites. Also, I didn’t have my microphone on for the first four minutes of the episode, but by some miracle I realized that my microphone wasn’t on, and I fixed the problem, and clearly we are a beacon of podcasting excellence.

The Big Boo Cast, Episode 234

Well, it was a formal event extravaganza for Caroline this past weekend in San Antonio, and on this episode Melanie and I spend some time breaking down the details. We also talk about college baseball (such a surprise this time of year, right?) and Alex’s spring football practice.

On top of all that, we discuss what we’ve been watching this past week as well as some celebrity news that has intrigued us (please see: Bennifer). Plus, Melanie shares her five favorites.

Hope y’all enjoy!

The Big Boo Cast, Episode 233

In this episode we talk about the strange adjustment to speaking in public again, and we also discuss this past weekend’s baseball series between the Aggies and the Bulldogs (spoiler alert: the winner was a team wearing maroon). Plus, we break down some of the events surrounding Alex’s junior prom – and, on a much grander scale, how the pictures of Alex Drummond’s wedding were the gift we didn’t know we needed.

We also continue our discussion (from Patreon) about Melanie’s feelings about inanimate objects before we plan an imaginary graduation party buffet – and I share my Five Favorites.
